Back to October 2010 QMH Show

Jimmie Daniels

During the 30s and on Jimmie Daniels was a very popular entertainer, playing often at the famous Bon Soir club and also even having his own nightclub, bearing his name. Besides working in New York City, he also performed often in London, Paris and Monaco. And he was also an influence on singers like Bobby Short. You can hear several rare tracks by him on my Oct show.
